Superplasticizer Kratasol S-3 is a complex product based on polymethylene-8-naphthalenesulfonates, modifiers. According to its consumer properties, Kratasol S-3 meets the requirements of GOST 24211, EN934-2, applied to superplasticizing, water-reducing additives.


Superplasticizer Kratasol S-3 is designed for the production of commercial concrete mixtures of any mobility, incl. Self-compacting. The additive can be used for the production of prefabricated reinforced concrete structures from heavy, light and cellular concrete in various construction projects.

Superplasticizer Kratasol S-3 is successfully used:

  • For obtaining high mobility, incl. Self-compacting concrete at industrial and civil construction sites;
  • In the manufacture of prefabricated reinforced concrete structures of various configurations and the degree of reinforcement;
  • In the manufacture of lightweight concrete;
  • At construction of all kinds of monolithic constructions from heavy and fine-grained concrete.


  • Stable plasticizing effect when working on cements of various mineralogical composition: increasing the mobility of a concrete mixture from P1 to P5
  • The universality of the additive - the possibility of using both for commercial concrete mixtures and for prefabricated reinforced concrete structures;
  • Facilitates the pumping of concrete mixtures;
  • Increases the strength of concrete by more than 20% in comparison with no-add concrete (when tested in an equidistant mixture);
  • It does not contain chlorides, which makes it possible to use it in reinforced structures (including prestressed ones);
  • It allows to obtain concretes of increased water resistance (W12 and higher), frost resistance (F300 and higher);
  • Improves the adhesion of concrete with embedded fittings and metal products.

Recommendations for use

The superplasticizer Kratasol C-3 is introduced into the concrete mixture together with the mixing water, preferably with the last third of the mixing water. It is not recommended to add the additive to the dry mix. After adding the additive to the concrete mix, it is necessary to ensure sufficient mixing time for a uniform distribution of the additive in the concrete mix. The additive is combined with the air-entraining admixture TM KRTASOL Aeromix if it is necessary to regulate the air entrainment (obtaining transport concretes, high frost resistance concrete, etc.), giving the concrete mixture special rheological properties, etc.


The recommended dosage of the additive is 0,4-0,8% in terms of dry substance in relation to the mass of binders or 1,1-2,3% of 35% solution. The range of recommended dosage supplements can be extended. The optimum dosage of the additive is established during laboratory selection. At the same time, the concrete composition is selected in accordance with GOST 27006 by any method that meets the design requirements for concrete and concrete mix, followed by adjusting properties by reducing water consumption and optimizing the dosage of the additive.


It is recommended to dispense with an error of not more than ± 2%. In the case of long-term storage or use of large amounts of additives, periodic homogenization of the additive solution by bubbling with compressed air or stirring is necessary.

Physicochemical Properties


In liquid form, the additive is supplied in bulk in auto- and railway tanks, as well as in plastic containers of various capacities.

In dry form, the additive is packed in paper or polypropylene bags with a polyethylene liner or soft containers such as MKR (big bags).


Store at a temperature of + 5 ÷ + 35 0 C in a closed container. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight. If the recommended storage conditions are violated, the physical, chemical and consumer properties of the product may change. Observance of the recommended conditions allows storing the additive within 12 months from the date of manufacture. In the case of the freezing of the aqueous solution of the additive after thawing and homogenization, the superplasticizer Kratasol C-3 can be used in accordance with the recommendations.


It is recommended to use protective gloves when working with the additive. If the additive gets on your skin, you should wash it off with soap and water. Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and consult a doctor if necessary. Dispose of the additive according to local regulations, do not pour into the soil, water, sewerage.

Recommendations for the use of the additive are presented on the basis of the available practical experience with proper storage and use. For more information, please contact the technical support service of PJSC "Pigment", direction - "Additives in building materials".
